Lot 355 - Anna Maria Schönrock - Woodpecker
Oil on paper
Signed on Verso
This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust.
If one understands figuration and abstraction as two possible poles between which contemporary painterly practices can move, then Anna Maria Schönrock chooses a space in between, a third way, a back door - a form of transition between the two poles that is always in the making. The forms either dissolve through the application of paint - towards abstraction - or peel out through the application of paint - towards figuration. Painting thus becomes an experimental arrangement, similar to a research trip or an experimental arrangement, where the approximate goal is fixed but the path is not yet clear(…)

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The works submitted for AOAP show two central European birds - two woodpeckers - birds are a recurring motif in my work reflecting a fascination for nature and a preoccupation with the conflict of the human-nature relationship.
